The Earth’s Cry

Water is everything.
A spindly thread of life,
feeble, singular, wondrous.
Providing everything. Everything.

The earth cries a silent sob.
Listen closely and you will hear it.
Ignore it and you will be it.

The dams are dry
The people, ask why
Nothing compares. Nothing.

Progress comes at a cost.
Progress, it will be lost.
It all will come tumbling down.
Nothing compares. Nothing.

The leaders, they lie.
The people, they sigh.
Nothing compares.  Nothing.

The famine is near.
The people live in fear.
Nothing compares.  Nothing.

The tables are bare.
The leaders don’t care.

The people, they die.
And nobody hears the Earth cry.
